It’s been over 2 years since our last batch of interns completed their internships at KoLe. So many things have happened but one good thing is that we still all try to keep in touch with one another. Besides Ly-san’s latest trip to Japan, Linh-san keeps us posted from time to time.
Certified Japanese Traditional Craftsman. Creating fun and interesting wooden items using his skills of being a “KUDE SHOJI” and Joinery craftsman. Kagawa prefecture, Shikoku, JAPAN.
About the artisan
Born to the third generation of a KUMIKO fixture company that has been in business since 1946. His childhood memories are of being engrossed in making toys with the chips of wood he would find at the factory. He was apprenticed to the first apprentice of his grandfather, and since then has been active as an artisan carrying on the traditional craft of Kagawa KUDE shoji. He is a Certified Japanese Traditional Craftsman (dentou kougei shi).
What he creates
His creation is quite ambitious for a joinery. He creates items beyond fixtures or decoration for doors with his knowledge of wood, skills of KUMIKO/KUDE SHOJI and joinery. We asked him to join us because we can feel his love and passion towards wood crafts and responsibility as a successor of Japanese traditional craft skills through his work.
